However, the Organization is not obligated to do so. If a substitute form of Bill of Lading is needed to complete delivery of this shipment and the Organization completes that document, the terms of this Bill of Lading will govern. The Organization is not liable to the Customer or to any other person for any actions taken on behalf of the Customer under this provision.

Note: As part of the anti-terrorism rules / regulations, inspection of freight that moves cross border (to or from Canada or Mexico) may result in carriers (LTL, TL and Intermodal) applying charges to shipments inspected by US Customs. These random inspections are not known at time of shipment and therefore are excluded from all quotes. Any applicable costs associated with random border inspections will be the responsibility of the customer.

5. Claims and Limitations of Liability

Customer acknowledges that Freightz.com is a Freight Broker and not the actual Freight Carrier. Customer also agrees that the services provided by Freightz.com were limited to brokering of freight between the parties of Customer and Carrier and that this service was secured, executed, processed and recorded as a service within the State of Florida. The Customer acknowledges that the transportation of their freight is performed exclusively by the Freight Carrier and not performed by Freightz.com Understanding this, the Customer agrees to hold Freightz.com harmless for services (i.e.
transportation of freight) performed by the Freight Carrier. Customer agrees to pay Freightz.com per agreement regardless of any disputes that may or may not occur with the Freight Carrier.

Therefore: All parties including Freightz.com, the Customer and the Carrier agree any claim, dispute or controversy between Customer and Freightz.com (and/or made by/or against anyone connected with Customer or Freightz.com or claiming through Customer or Freightz.com) arising from/or relating to Customer’s use of Freightz.com’s website or services provided by Freightz.com including claims regarding applicability or validity of this arbitration provision, shall be re solved by binding arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (”AAA”) then in effect, subject to these Terms and Conditions at a mutually agreed location within Pinellas County, State of Florida, USA.
